Presented by Joe Simonetta
Societies advance technologically easily, but socially and politically continue to destroy each other and our environment. Join Joe Simonetta as he takes us through the origin and structure of the universe, evolutionary biology, and religion to lay the groundwork for a nonreligious understanding of what is sacred. Reality has behavioral demands. They can be summarized in seven words that form three simple rules for living that say and do more than the Ten Commandments.
Joe Simonetta is committed to help people realize what it takes to make a difference in our world. He has authored several books including his most recent book, 7 Words That Can Change The World, The Simple Truth & The Death of Sacred Cows, where he presents a global belief system – in 7 Words. Joe has been an entrepreneur, businessman, architect, real estate developer, environmental activist, and spent a year campaigning as a Democrat candidate for the US Congress. He has a B.S from Penn State, a Master of Architecture from the University of Colorado, has been an Army officer, a professional athlete and at age 50 returned to school to study at Yale and earn a Master of Divinity from Harvard University.
To Joe, sacredness has nothing to do with pre-scientific-revolution, pre-age-of-reason gods, creation stories, texts, or religions. Sacredness is that in life, which, at our peril, we cannot damage, dishonor, or destroy. When we violate that which is sacred, we suffer. It’s simply the way life works. Joe’s website is www.7WordsChangeTheWorld.com and his book is available from Amazon.
